[applause] >> good evening. good evening. on behalf of the millions of mothers, daughters, wives, sisters, and friends, republicans and democrats who counted on planned parenthood for health care and in honor of the thousands and doctors of the staff of planned parenthood all across america, i am proud tonight to support the reelection of president barack obama. [applause] two years ago, when paul ryan took over theeohner house of representatives, they promised they would create jobs. instead, on day one, they came after women's health and they have not let up since. first, they voted to end cancer screenings for 5 million women. they voted to end funding for birth control with planned parenthood, and, for good measure, they even tried to redef
for change has come. [captioning made possible by nbc universal] chris: barack obama gets propelled out of charlotte. how does it look from here to the first the bait? the two candidates start the final stretch head-to-head with only a slight edge to obama. but it's important according to gallup poll, the one leading at this point usually wins. what's best for hillary? if she hopes to become president, is she better off if the barack obama wins or loses? if she sees the economy taking off, she wants barack obama for another term. if she sees a weak economy ahead, she wants romney to win. trish rebegan with us, a.p.a.j. hunt and politico's john harris. the president didn't say how his sec term would be different. opting instet to rouse the troops. >> our friends down in tampa at the republican convention were more than happy to talk about everything they think is wrong with america. all they had to offer is the same precipitations they've had for the last -- presippingses they've had for the last 0 -- prescriptions they've had for the last 30 years. deficit too high? tax cut. feel a cold

on the dollar. president obama, the first bill he signed was the lily ledbetter fair pay act to make sure women no longer are going to earn 78 cents on the dollar. it makes a difference because these economic issues fundamentally affect every american family and equal pay is fundamental for that. >> ifill: yet so often when we talk about women's issues we're talking about reproductive and health issues. i wonder, attorney general harris, whether the todd akin comments about "legitimate rape" and the debate about that in the republican party, that in some ways was a god send to democrats even though it took your eye off of the economy as an issue >> well, you know, i'm a career prosecutor so the idea that someone would refer to a "legitimate rape" is quite offensive. if not shocking. and i think it highlight what is we need still to do to educate people about crimes against women in violence and the need to take it seriously and that we encourage victims to come forward. often women who are victims of domestic violence and sexual assault are reluctant to come forward because they are concerned t
obama. >> announcer: so what will he say tonight? and how much will it help him? this is the democratic national convention. it's "your voice your vote." now reporting live from the time warner cable arena in charlotte, north carolina, diane sawyer and george stephanopoulos. >>> and good evening, to you all, once again from charlotte, north carolina. the democratic national convention in high gear as you can hear and tonight the main event. one of the most formidable competitors in modern politics. former president bill clinton will enter the arena right across that stage and try to give his patented rocket fuel. >> and president obama will be watching from this arena tonight. likely to come out on stage. what a journey for these two men. they come from different generations, different political worlds. they have built it up step-by-step. he's starring now in campaign ads. and diane, one of the building blocks is when president obama wanted to make hillary clinton secretary of state, bill clinton became the chief persuader. >> they've been good friends for a long time but it's definitel

. this afternoon president obama arrived in charlotte right in time for a star studded night. the marquee speaker tonight, former president bill clinton. the crowd will also hear from elizabeth warren running for the senate in massachusetts. the speakers have been passionate at this convention. throwing punch after punch at republicans and aggressively affirming the strength of the president's record. and it's been great to see. they talked about the auto bailout. >> the american auto industry is not just surviving. it's thriving. where mitt romney was willing to turn his back on akron, dayton, and toledo, ohio, the president said i've got your back. >> the president's record on women's issues. >> being a mother is no longer a liability. and being a woman is no longer a pre-existing condition. now, that's what change looks like. >> and we've heard the most sustained defense of the obama health care law and what it means to this country. >> this is the president who delivered the security of affordable health care to every single american in every corner of this country after 90 years of trying. >
will have a better future. it is not what we were promised. i wish president obama had succeeded because i want america to succeed. but his promises gave way to disappointments and division. this isn't something we have to accept. now is the moment when we can do something, and with your help, we will do something. [ applause ] now is the moment when we can stand up and say i'm an american, i make my destiny, we deserve better. my children deserve better, my family deserves better, my country deserves better. >>> question, did the republican convention improve mitt romney's presidential prospects? mortmort zuckerman? >> i think he had to have a platform on which he could appeal to the american public and i think by and large that worked. i think he was often trying to appeal to women and there were a number of things said and done that would i think haven deared him to the voters who are women. and finally, he did a very good job, it seems to me, without being nasty about it, about saying look, the obama administration has been a failure and failure is not an orphan. there is a father for
. >> with a counter attack. >> president obama said he believes in redistribution. >> also the fallout from the anti-american violence in the middle east. >> was their intelligence prior to this attack? if not, why not? >> advice from mike russell. >> i said relax. just be one of yourselves. >> mitt romney has become the 2012 elections man of constant sorrow. ever since "mother jones" published a video in which he appears to write off half the country last may well talking to donors in florida. scott brown and republican george allen. >> you said nearly half the country see themselves as victims? >> no. i love very positively peacoat you disagree with governor romney? >> i have my own point of view. >> my guess would be george allen wished he did not have to answer questions like that. >> i think he did not answer questions like that. the reason that statent was so ba is because it was mitt romney is point of view. pcs nearly half the country as moochers who want a handout from government. he does not understand why they don't just borrow from their parents or take money from their trust funds. he d
numbers showing president obama ahead by eight points in iowa and four points in florida. while the swing state map is what everybody is watching the swing states are the most important to keep an eye on because that's where you wrap up the votes that allow you to win the election, there's new national polling now for what it's worth. there's new polling every day. the republican leaning poll is out with their new national numbers today. their national tracking poll putting president obama up by one point nationally. the gallup tracking poll putting president obama up by three points today nationally. that's in big picture perspective of what's going on in the presidential race. for an even bigger picture perspective on those national numbers, i should point out to you that of the last 20 national presidential polls, of the 20 national polls taken in the month of september, every single one of those it 20 polls shows president obama winning nationally. the range varies from one point up to eight points in some other polls. but 20 straight national polls showing president obama ahead. that
, by cooperation. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and g
-- immigration reform, and for those of us that followed that, barack obama voted for poison-pill amendments the coalition did not support, that john mccain/kennedy did not support, yet when it came to the election, john mccain did horrible with latino voters and felt abandoned by the group he felt he had been fighting for, and probably one of the most negative eds their opinion 2008 was a spanish language and then try to link john mccain to the use of rush limbaugh, not even fairly taken -- taking the views of rush limbaugh into context, and he hates the john mccain, but he abandoned immigration reform after the election, and frankly, just talking about the principles, how could you blame him? >> i would say his party abandoned him. we saw in the primaries leading up to the nomination, you had rudy guiliani trying to outdo each other in terms of extreme rhetoric that was anti-locking all. it was a weight that he could not overcome as he was headed into the nomination and he realized he could not fulfil the positions he had taken early on and had no choice. i think this is a reflection of th
. to reelect the president. >> in charlotte tonight, bill clinton nominates barack obama to serve a second term, appealing to voters who still think it's all about the economy. >> i hope i bring some credibility on what the most effective way to create jobs and bring america back is. >> these two democrats have been at odds in the past. but they're united in the battle to hold on to the white house. >> you're in good hands. >> look for clinton to fire up supporters tonight as he has before. but is there a risk he'll upstage the president? >> sit down! >> now, cnn turns the spotlight on one of the biggest platforms in american politics. this is the democratic national convention. this is the night delegates have their say. >> join with me, we will elect barack obama president of the united states of america. >> this is america's choice. >>> we'd like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. everyone here is waiting to hear what bill clinton will say about president obama tonight as well as his own t
think we are going to see a dramatically different rock obama -- barack obama if he wins, and specifically with regard to campaign finance reform. now he has said, and i got to play by the rules, because i cannot lose, but when i get in, i am going to fix this campaign finance issue, so what are your thoughts? >> i think my answer is the same, and that is that i do not know. now i do not think anyone knows. it is the obvious race between obama and romney, but it is the issue of campaigning, and we do not know who is going to end up in the white house if he wins reelection. there are differences between the two. obama campaigned as a leader, but he governs as a timid leader. you cannot be a transformational leader and not ruffle many feathers, and he understands that, and we have wasted a lot of pressures term, and if we go back to the original stimulus bill, if it had been better crafted, better targeted, larger, we would have perhaps not had ongoing erosion in terms of jobs that we have seen, so time matters comi-con when it comes to us it -- time matters when it comes t
michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st
. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. now, i -- i, i want -- i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states. and, i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk. oh, about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative. how we want everybody to depend on the government. how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairman that the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but, as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it. with business and government actually working together to promote gr
, 23 million unemployed or underemployed today. question, the obama team is trying to spin the video as meaning romney only cares about the top 53%. not the 47% who get government benefits. is this damaging to governor romney? tim? >> absolutely damaging to governor romney. because he is writing off a portion of the population. it is not just that he is talking down to them, like barack obama did four yeersz ago, when he talked -- years ago when he talked about the bitter clingers who clinged to guns and religion, and obama says we can win them over and romney is saying i can't win this part of the population. anybody who writes off that population, i don't know where he will get off the 50% to win. >> the problem is they're not all democrats. a lot of them are republicans. they're veterans. they're people who receive benefits, social security. people do not think they're undeserving. so he is insulting basically much of the electorate. and there is a window of his soul. this is how mitt romney thinks, and when he was thinking of that mansion in boca raton, this is i think how rich p
obama. all of this as the convention begins here in charlotte, north carolina. ♪ ♪ >> thank you so much. thank you. the 46th quadrennial national convention of the democratic national party will now come to order. of the next three days we will hold the most open and accessible political convention in history. thank you. dior's from across the country and world can watch the entire convention, gavel-to-gavel, on the website and through our global application. the entire program is also being streamed simultaneous in spanish. [cheers and applause] we will clearly demonstrate why we need to key barack obama and joe biden in the white house. this convention is more than reelecting the president obama. it is about helping the economy from the middle class out. this success will be based on the gauging the. of all the people who want to put their shoulders to the whale to the willeacregion and change our country for the better. we are so proud we have the largest number of delegates ever assembled at a democratic national convention. as i look out from this podium, ee the strength and unity
with michelle obama and tonight's speakers have been clearly trying to continue to push romney and tonight particularly with sandra fluke, to push romney to push him to the extremes on cant rasept whereon and social issues that affect women. right now, that's working for obama. you know, people like to take about, well, there is a gap with men, that romney leads on. but i think the obama people figured out, they can keep the gap with women and hispanics and to keep forcing that out. don't let romney close it, which they may have been worried about, with the ann romney speech. i think some of this is a reaction to that. >> you point out, the man we saw on stage, jim sin gel, speaking about business and the way forward. brit, tonight, we have elizabeth warren, the senate candidate in massachusetts and then leading in to president clinton. what do you expect from both speeches? >> well, elizabeth warren's speech has been... put out. i have seen it. i don't think it will surprise anyone. she, like sandra fluke, will be a big hero and a big -- will get a big boost from this audience. it's what
over the past year signaling obama as our next president? this is the kudlow report. the fbi is on the ground in libya investigating last week's assault on our embassy there which resulted in the death of four officials including our ambassador. and today after more than a week of denials, the white house finally admits it was a terror attack. unfortunately they have been lying to us for more than a week for political campaign reasons and i think it's emperative that ambassador susan rice step down immediately. and going to ask homeland security team -- mitt romney, one reason why obama's polls are looking stronger could be the stock market owning investor class. he's very happy with a 25% gain just over the last year. and new studies show that stocks predict elections better than any other variable. but first up, after nine days, the u.s. government is finally calling the consulate attack in benghazi, an act of terrorism. the fbi now on the ground in libya. here's the latest. >> caller: good evening, larry, the fbi has arrived in tripoli, libya where they are carrying out an
to be an american. >> and -- >> no one's ever asked to see my birth certificate. >> and this tweet, obama sympathizes with attackers in egypt. and then last night -- >> he's not a real president. >> tonight on "hardball" we show you the true ugly campaign being run against the president. even in the face of this ugly attack, there are two big new poll numbers running in his direction. we give them to you tonight. let's check the hardball scoreboard. according to a "new york times"/cbs/quinnipiac poll, obama leads romney by ten points. down in florida, the president's lead in the poll is nine, 53-44. the president looks to be opening up a big lead now, even in the face of this coordinated attack from the right. with me now are mother jones bureau chief and msnbc political contributor david corn and cynthia tucker. i want to talk about the good news for the obama team right now. cynthia, why do you think -- take a minute here -- despite this ugly campaign i've just pointed out in its pattern, its thread, what they are doing to try to delegitimize this president, why is he doing well in the
. barack obama loses. people know what barack obama has to sell. and they know that he didn't deliver what he said he would deliver and i think that's a big problem for him. but independents don' generally break toward the incumbent. they know what barack obama promised, they know what he delivered. they know that the economy is in the ditch. so i like where we're at. >> what is mitt romney have to do? we've talked about biographies, he's got to reveal more about himself. and that's been said a lot and i think it's crucially important. there's also as you said, independent voters, undecided voters, softly committed voters who feel that washington doesn't work and they're right about that and nothing will change. what does mitt romney have to say to folks who are going to be watching him about how he actually gets things done. how he, not only does he have a vision for the country. how he has a road map in washington to get it done under these circumstances. >> i think the mitt romney story is a story of a guy who lives his life on metrics, setting goals and meeting goaltends. the president
he's never afraid to throw a curveball. and then with the bases loaded, can president obama hit it out of the park? >> i'm steve kornacki here in charlotte where everyone is still talking about bubba's big night. oh, yeah, and that other prime-time speech. >> who are the democrats playing to this week, their base or the middle? is there even a middle anymore? howard fineman makes his debut in "the cycle" this hour. >> every convention has a party, but what do each convention's musical choices say? >> all that, plus what i want to hear from the president tonight. it's september 6th. the grand finale of the dnc, and you're in "the cycle." >>> good thursday afternoon to you. as all you cycle fans know, that means the intersection of presidential politics and, of course, baseball. so as we are in the bottom of the sixth in the election cycle, the game is tight. last night the democrats sent in their premier setup man, a left-hander named clinton, and set up he did. >> i want to nominate a man who's cool on the outside. but who burns for america on the inside. >> i could have watched
, president obama recognizes jerusalem as the capital of israel and our party's platform should as well. mr. chairman, i have submitted my amendment in writing and i believe it is being projected on the screen for the delegates to see. i move adoption of the amendment as submitted and shown to the delegates. >> a motion has been made. is there a second? is there any further discussion? hearing none, the matter requires a two-thirds vote in the affirmative. all those in favor? all those opposed? in the opinion -- let me do that again. all of those delegates in favor, say aye. all those opposed, say no. i will do that one more time. all those delegates in favor say aye. all those opposed, say no. in the opinion of that chair, two-thirds of the vote is in the affirmative. the platform has been amended as shown on the screen. thank you very much. gov strickland, thank you for your service. thank you again for your service. as chair of the platform drafting committee. everyone, please rise for the invocation offered by bishop vashti murphy mckenzie. >> this would be the time you would take the h
-israel platform. you have to wonder why it happened in the first place. president obama as candidate in 2008, saying it was his personal belief jerusalem was and always will be the capital of israel. whose brilliant idea was to take it out of the platform? still a bit of a mystery today. nobody is saying who it might have been. watch this exchange between myself and dnc chairman debbie wasserman schultz last evening after that revote. why was it dropped in the first place? i understand clarification or the rewrite, whatever, why was that language 2kr07d in the first place? >> essentially like i said it was technical correction when we realized that needed clarification on president obama realized his personal view about jerusalem being israel's capital and always remaining israel's capital wasn't in the platform he made sure we took the pretty, at least in terms of recent history, a pretty unprecedented step of amending our platform in the middle of the convention. >> reporter: same thing with the word god being taken out of the platform. nobody could explain why that happened. debbie wasser
no doubt where he stands in relation to the closer, president barack obama. >> president obama started with a much weaker economy than i did. listen to me now. no president, no president, not me, not any of my predecessors, no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years. >> just in case you forgot, it is now the clinton/obama democratic party. >> america, if that is what you want. >> if th-- if that is what you believe, you must vote and re-elect president obama. god bless you and god bless america. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> to analyze all that, we brought in two of the best color kmem today to bes we know. in charlotte, hanging on by his finger names is willie geist. orioles fan and now front runner nationals fan, luke russert. >> nationals all the way. >> abandon my orioles, luke. what's up with that? willie, let me start with you. set the scene for us down there in charlotte. demes are trying to wrap up with their closer, obama. what's going on? >> krystal, before i get to that, you did mention i'm a yankees fan. did you hear the news? just
obama, another good night for them. >> affable, effective, as a democrat, it doesn't get any better. i'm sitting here, i'm giddy, i mean, this is exactly what barack obama needed. mending fences, bringing people together, understanding the facts. and i liked the way president clinton talked about the universe the republicans have painted president obama in, that they are not in reality, they are not in the real world. he even used the word "hate," and i'm glad he addressed this tonight, because you have to understand the climate before you can have the healing, and he also talked about a dysfunctional washington saying it doesn't have to be a blood sport and documented the kinds of things that he worked on with republicans and really in a roundabout way, gave the country hope that we can get together and we should be and it's a responsibility for elected officials to get to the point where they can work together. so, and, of course, he talked about philosophy, which i think is important about owning your own, you know, philosophy of owning your own health care, owning your own retireme
